I like the way the suspenders guy is reaching toward it with an awestruck expression, like the apes in 2001 encountering the Monolith.

Thanks Sergio: I was using two Canon lenses: the 17-40 f1:4 L and the 85 f1:1.8 EF. Two very nice lenses!

Thanks, indeed; and please most more as soon as you can. Nice use of selective focus with the long, fast lens.

Fittingly for a company that leaves nothing to chance and pays so much attention to detail, AP's malted chocolate balls and other candies were the tastiest in the show!

Neil,

Thanks for the pics. You covered most of mine, with the exception of two small items that got my interest:

(1) the Vixen Polarie Star Tracker (a motorized camera mount)

(2) Moonglow Technologies' "Lucky Cam"

Nice Pics- I thought that custom TEC astrograph is f/4.4 (not 1.44) and built exclusively for the attached camera. I could be wrong. Hard to interpet the label.
